Rhubarb season is almost here! Here's a recipe from MJF magazine: Buds, Berries & Bulbs, June–July 2015. Enjoy!


1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 t sugar
1/2 t salt
10 T cold butter, cut into pieces
1/3 cup cold water

12 ozs strawberries, hulled and quartered (about 3 cups)
8 ozs rhubarb, thickly sliced (about 2 cups)
1 3/4 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
1 t MaryJane’s ChillOver Powder (

Italian Meringue
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
3 egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 t cream of tartar
1/4 t salt

1. Make crust: combine flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle in water until dough forms; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface; let rest for 5 minutes (helps prevent crust from slipping and shrinking while baking). Transfer to an 8" cast-iron skillet. Poke holes in the bottom of crust with a fork, line with foil, add pie weights, and bake for 20 minutes. Cool while making filling.

3. Make filling: In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring strawberries, rhubarb, and water to a boil; simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the juice and discard pulp. You should have 2 cups juice (if you have less, add water to make 2 cups).

4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring juice and sugar to a boil. Whisk in ChillOver powder, boil an additional 3 minutes; cool slightly, and pour into baked pie crust. Cool until set, about 2 hours, or overnight.

5. Make meringue: Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water, stirring just until sugar is dissolved. Without stirring, cook until syrup reaches 240°F on a candy thermometer.

6. Meanwhile, whip egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt; whip egg whites into soft peaks. While mixing, pour syrup into egg whites in a slow, steady stream. Once all syrup is added, whip into stiff, glossy peaks.

7. Spoon meringue onto pie and form into desired shape; bake for 10–12 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely and serve.

Oh boy Sydney, wouldn't I love a piece of that right now. You did a great job!

Looks yummy Sydney! I still haven't had a chance to make it but it's on the to do list.

Mine is not near as pretty as your's MaryJane! Mine firned up after being in the fridge overnight(these pictures were taken just after I made it).

Hi everyone! I tried the recipe and it turned out, well, pretty good! My only struggle was the pie crust, the sides shrunk down so I had(what looked like) a tart crust. I did change it up a bit, I added a little more filling, and instead of meringue, I used MaryJane's non-dairy whipped topping.

It was really good! I used our frozen strawberries and fresh rhubarb from the garden. Because the crust was so tiny, part of the filling went underneath! But because of the pre-baked crust, it wasn't soggy. I didn't bake it a second time, because of the topping, here are some pictures:

Sorry if they're blurry!(And that the counter is a mess! ;)

That's it, Charlene!

That has happened a few times ... er, hum, several times here, Keeley. We moms must have just fantastic vision that others don't possess. :)

At my house food only disappears in the freezer if a child goes to look for it. I'm not sure why the freezer magically empties for them, but I can find what I asked them to look for. Maybe I just have a horrible way of organizing and they can't follow it. That must be it. ;)

What usually happens to me is that I find a substitute and make whatever I had planned, and then find the original item afterwards! I tell my hubby that my head would wander off if it weren't attached!

I definately agree Janet! Does it just disappear?
NellieBelle Posted - Apr 20 2016 : 08:21:01 AM
Am I the only one who thinks some of the food in the freezer walks away? I was for certain I had more strawberries but when I looked right where I thought they were, not there. So, I guess it's rhubarb raspberry pie instead. I will have to try the recipe above at another date. I was so looking forward to making it today. Plans foiled again.

This looks great! I need to try this sometime!

Ashley made rhubarb salad dressing last week that was delicious. I haven't seen the recipe yet to know what's in it. I did get in on some her pie when she made it. Also very delish!

Does that ever look delicious Karina! Can't wait to try it. I don't have time to make it for supper tonight but perhaps tomorrow. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. My rhubarb is up but not ready to cut but I have plenty in the freezer, strawberries too. Yum!
